Springfest experience and origami butterflies

Springfest was held indoors at Downsview park during the March break; we liked that it was indoors because of the chilly weather. There were free face painting, origami workshops, music and clowns. They also had carnival games and food.

The tickets could have been a little cheaper because mostly it was bouncy houses and 3 rides. The fest was for children age 2 to 10, and my children did enjoy it very much.
Overall it was a fun indoor carnival for the family.

We learned how to make origami at the SpringFest. It was our first time with origami and we were able to follow the steps to make these butterflies. Here is a tutorial I found on the web, it was similar to this except for the last 3 steps.
On the 7th step on this linked tutorial where the circles are we were told to fold it in a little bit, then squeeze the paper a little bit to make the butterflies.

  1. My daughters had a great time. The rides were quite appropriate for their age but I agree that wasn't much variety as far as the rides were concerned. Doo Doo the clown also seemed to be a hit with the older kids.

  2. I would love to have some fun myself too! Great post!

  3. Very cute butterflies! A great simple way to pass the time.
